Posted by in Articles, Hacks, Internet

Nowadays, forgetting passwords makes no wonder, for we have many e-mail services, social networking sites, shopping sites, educational sites, forums–all these demand a username with password.

Most of the netizens carry two or three email accounts at least–I have five mail accounts. Besides, we have to manage passwords of our Bank accounts, pins of debit and credit cards, and some other money transacting sites. Undoubtly, it seems very difficult to memorise passwords and pins of all these at a time. So what should be done–make a handy diary of passwords or just try some tips and tricks. I shall not  favour a handy diary of passwords; I do favour some tips and tricks.

Google provides many ways to do so. Let’s see some of them.

1. Most of the users use Google chrome, if you are one of them, you can easily retreat your passwords. Google chrome keeps your passwords safe in its database. Let’s see how to get passwords:

  1. How to retrieve passwords online:

Google works very smartly in organising an user’s data; It saves you browsing history, your bookmarks and even your passwords. You can get your passwords online sitting at the any corner of the world.

Just Go to the “passwords.google.com”, then it ask for your Google account password; Just after submitting the passwords, you can be able to see your passwords.

Note: It only can happen when you allow your chrome to save the password.

You can test it over gmail or on any other mail accounts, as well. First, bring the cursor in the password input box and then right click. It brings a pop-up menu; At the end of the menu, you see Inspect element : a link.  Click the link.
